At the last United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology meeting, there was a total of 171 papers presented in the gynecologic pathology sessions. I have prepared a summary of some papers that I consider interesting and provides new information for gynecologic oncologists. In some of these studies, I have also incorporated additional comments.

  • Deceiving dysplasia
  • Trachelectomy specimens
  • Menorrhagia
  • PHH3 antibody
